Don't get takeout when this sandwich only takes five minutes to make.

Honey Mustard Chicken Panini

Sometimes I completely forget I own a panini maker. It's a shame too because when I bust it out I remember how amazingly awesome it really is. I can make hot melty sandwiches in under 10 minutes and have dinner ready in no time. This simple sandwich uses store-bought chicken breast, honey mustard and arugula. To completely take it over the top I paired it with a simple honey mustard mayonnaise dipping sauce.
